Review: iFrogz Wrapz Case for iPhone 3G/3GS

Mobile Phones & Gear iPhone Gear iPhone

iFrogz has quickly become one of the leading accessory manufacturers for Apple’s iPhone.  From cases to headphones and charger and speakers their products are both functional and extremely stylish.

I recently received one of their Wrapz cases for the iPhone 3G & 3GS to review.

This silicone case comes in a variety of color choices and at a price of only $14.99 it’s worth a look.

The Wrapz case is available in seven color variations:  (Thick Black, White, Royal Blue, Red Ruby, Gun Metal Grey, Pink Panther and Clear.

I received the Clear version.

Inside the case you’ll find iFrogz includes a crystal clear screen protector with the case.  A somewhat unexpected addition for a case that sells for under $15, but one that is not unwelcome.

The case itself is thicker than most silicone cases, which is good.  More silicone means more shock and impact protection for your phone if it’s dropped.

The back of the case has a swirl design which is slightly raised.  This adds a little more grip to the back of the case.

The iPhone fits into the Wrapz case perfectly.  It’s a nice tight fit, which is important when dealing with a silicone case.  You don’t want your case sagging around the edges.  The extra thick Wrapz case shouldn’t loosen up after prolonged use either.

The case features a complete “lay on the table” design which protects all of the iPhone’s chrome bezel.

The cut out on the top of the phone is unlike most cases of this type.  It’s a full cutout.  I’m personally not a fan of this design.  I’d rather see smaller individual cutouts for each button/port as that protects more of the device.  Still this isn’t a deal-breaker for me and it’s something I’m willing to live with.

There is a generous cutout along the bottom of the case revealing full access to the phone’s dock connector, mic and speaker.

Same goes for the volume rocker and vibrate switch.  There is no issue accessing either even with large fingers.

The clear version I was sent is matted and still allows the back of the phone, and most importantly the Apple logo, to be seen.

Priced at under $15, available in a ton of cool colors, the iFrogz Wrapz is great choice if you’re in search of a silicone style case for your iPhone 3G or 3GS.

It offers a good amount of both shock and impact protection in the way of thick padded silicone yet it remains stylish and rather sleek in the hand.

M.S.R.P. – $14.99

What I like – comes in many colors, thick silicone, screen shield included, inexpensive.

What I don’t like – nothing.
